His tests are extremely hard and if you don't study for them you will probably fail imo but he teaches A LOT and gets you prepared for even the SAT 2. He's really clear about what he teaches and answers his questions REALLY WELL. He knows a lot about biology so don't be scared to go to sgi if you have something you didn't completely understand. He grades his lab write ups quite harshly too so be careful of that. He's REALLY funny and his anecdotes are quite interesting.
HIs tests are very hard but he is very nice and very knowledgable in the subject of Biology
His tests are soo hard, takes lab write ups seriously, pretty funny,He knows everything....I mean everything
Great teacher, possibly the best science teacher in the entire school, but tests are very hard and you will really have to study for them. However, you truly learn, and he makes the class interesting, even for someone who doesn't like biology at all. He's really nice, funny, and cool, and answers questions extremely well. You will be extremely prepared for the regents; it'll be a breeze compared to his tests.
Amazing teacher. He was and still is the best science teacher I've ever had. He explains everything incredibly well and really cares. I pity anyone whose never had the pleasure of being taught by him because he is honestly the best. His tests pretty hard, but if you study you'll be fine. His class always gets the highest regents grades because Mr.Figueras is most amazing science teacher in the whole school. I'm not exaggerating when I say, its like he was born to be a teacher.
As good a teacher as I've had in years, maybe ever.
One of the BEST teachers I've ever had. Love this guy
He is a cool dude, but his tests are extremely hard (badly worded)
One of the best teachers there is. His class is a challenge, but it's enjoyable and you actually learn. His tests are tough, but he's easy going and gives you opportunities to make up for it.
Mr. Figueras is the most dedicated biology teacher I have ever seen. He always gives us more than enough prep for tests, answers all our questions, and updates grades by the time we get home. He is also extremely well-versed in his concepts and he makes class fun and engaging. Whoever said he wants to "see the world burn" should not be attending Bronx Science.
I had him for summer school last year. By god he just wants to watch the world burn. He deliberately tries to fail you at first, by the first week I had a 50 in the class. he does, however, give you chances to redeem yourself with extra credit. He grades so strict, it's just ridiculous. I tried to transfer like 5 times.
Such a good teacher. You have to try in his class but you really learn from him. Really study for his tests though. Also he is one of the fastest graders I've ever had, and answers questions very well.
Best teacher ever! You actually learn in his class.
He gives a lot of homework and stuff, and his tests and quizzes are pretty messed up.
How can you count a quiz that every student did poorly (75>)? You could at the least curve it. This counts as a grade on the teacher's part as well. Just means the kids didn't understand what you were teaching.
Mr. Figueras was the best teacher, I learned so much about biology from him I aced the regents.
Really good teacher. He is nice but gave hard tests. He is a really good teacher. I am so sad that he left
He was the most amazing teacher ever. I loved 8th period. tests were super hard but it paid off when i took the regents. he left ='(. P.S. Mr. Figueras, if your reading this, come back. We need you!
Cool teacher, had him for Biology freshman year and still remembers my name even when I graduated.
Hes pretty nice and is a good teacher. No one dislikes him at all
glad to have him senior year, he is really chill, but its not an easy. Just do as he says and you'll do great, and you'll get to hear funny stories too! :)
Great teacher! Amazingly funny and creative. If you got to the bio department, you'll see that the other teachers rely on him for teaching materials (handouts, methods... etc.). :)
This is one of the best teachers you can find in the school.
Awesome teacher. My chem teacher is leaving in January, and I wish he could come and teach my class. Whoever has him, consider yourselves very, very lucky. Figgy rocks!
really funny! I look forward to going to bio, which is not something I have looked forward to. Ever.
Figgy is AWESOME! He teaches bio sooo well that I really like bio now. He is really funny also. I love how he picks on Amir all the time and I also love how he is lenient when it comes to cell phones!
ive only been here two weeks. i enjoy his classes and i dont really like biology and he's made me like it and it looks easy.
best teacher this year, hope to have him for research lit in spring
he was VERY cool and cynical, but cool. he is a very good teacher in biology: one of the world's best.
wow... you gotta love Mr. Figgy... he really rox my sox and i love his stories. He makes Bio fun and i want him to teach all my classes!
Excellent teacher, definetelly not asleep behind the wheel, much more than i can say for other teachers i have. Class is interesting and hands-on, which is cool
he is such a great teacher!! he gives excellent notes and his stories are hilarious! i wish he were a student instead of a teacher
Figgy P, aka The Notorious F.I.G., is the best teacher. Ever. Why else is everyone jealous of our class? :)
Mr. Fig is the MAN. he is even giving me extra credit for sitting next to Doty!!!!
Mr Figueras makes the class fun. He tells us funny stories wich get us of track in class which is pretty cool.
mr. figueras is so funny. he's just like a teenager except older. i love the tattoo. he's a good teacher, his tests are pretty easy. i actually like science now
Ur a great teach, but bio is just too hard. I can't get myself motivated to do my work. But u have great stories. Plz b our chem teacher next year!
Best teahcer I ever had. Funny, good teacher, good notes, good everything.

Best Teacher in the skool! He makes class interesting and wants you to learn about bio! We may not do much work but we have fun. ^_^

i love you mr. Fig! bio is the most fun class of the day, all cept lunch. you give great notes so i dun even have to look at the textbook.
COOL TeAcHeR, i learned a lot from him but his stories, i know their fake!!!!
figi is the collest guy ever. Definately the best teacher i ever had....he really makes class interesting and he seriously cares about his students!
FIGGY-RAS!! He taught us health this year... Perfect easy going teacher for a nonsense class senior year!
He is the best teacher I ever had! He's very cool and funny. You may not learn a lot in the class sometimes because were laughing soo much! He has funny stories for every topic and somehow after hearing the stories, you learn something somehow...
Mr Fig...an awesome man. He is so funny, and I actually look forward to coming to class. He is also a good teacher!
he is pretty cool..i've had him this past year and he really makes things better in class by telling us really funny stories...no prob. on tests..jus study! :-D
Mr. Fig rules! There is not much to say other than that. He knows what kids like, and trys to give kids what they want while still teaching the curriculum. Although sometimes he is unclear, he will help you whenever. You are lucky if you get him as a tchr
wow-he is great..makes class fun..teaches very welll!!!..u will learn subconsiously
He is the nicest teacher ever! He is so so cool, try to get into his class, it'll be the best.
